I’ve been attending the Knowledge and Project Management Symposium this week. Three hours of pre-conference prep work and a couple hours assisting with check-in each morning earned me free admission!
Today I attended Ken Lackey’s keynote speech on the knowledge economy and the aerospace industry, and panel discussions on digital libraries, information literacy, and strategic intelligence. OU-Tulsa’s Stewart Brower promises to post his lecture notes here, regarding information literacy, and here is the e-journal he founded, Communications in Information Literacy. I have to say, Brower’s enthusiasm is infectious!
Also enjoyed hearing Dr. Tom Rink‘s take on strategic intelligence. The Tulsa Police Dept.’s interactive mapping application is one way in which information has been made more accessible to the public. I’ve used this feature to identify and document high-risk Tulsa neighborhoods when conducting research for grants to support The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs.
More thoughts to follow as they crystalize…
